Job description

The KPMG Military Leavers’ Programme (MLP) aims to assist suitable candidates with their transition into a career in the thriving and fast-paced professional services industry. We are looking for talented individuals that want to join us on our journey to becoming the fastest growing, most trusted and best-connected professional services firm. The Ministry of Defence has recognised KPMG with a gold award for our work with service leavers and the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant.


The MLP is not an internship or placement/work experience; the roles we match our successful candidates to are live vacancies across all parts of the business, which includes: Audit, Consulting, Deal Advisory, Tax and Legal, Technology and KPMG Business Services (KBS). Over the past 5 years we have recruited over 175 veterans from Army JNCO to RAF Group Captain, spanning our capabilities and UK offices.  We have a fantastic range of roles open in KPMG which joining the MLP will give access to. It can be a daunting step changing career, and we will actively assist candidates in finding roles that suit both them as individuals, and our business. There is a far wider range than many imagine and we encourage applicants to be open-minded and flexible when considering potential options. Once in role military leavers will have access to the thriving Forces in The Firm network, which continues to support colleagues including reservists on their career journey with KPMG.   


Our focus is on quality over quantity, and we seek to attract exceptional people from diverse backgrounds with an ability to learn quickly, deliver impact and add value for our firm and our clients. If you are transitioning from the Forces, looking for your first opportunity and this sounds like the right path for you, then click on the 'apply for role' button to register your interest and to be considered for roles with KPMG UK.
